Hemant has appeared on CNN and FOX News Channel (really). He currently serves on the board of directors for Foundation Beyond Belief (a charity organization targeting non-theistic donors) after spending several years as the chair of the board of the Secular Student Alliance (which creates and supports college atheist groups nationwide).

Growing up in an intensely political but conservative Christian home, Bo’s campaigning life began as an anti-feminist Christian youth leader. At a Jesuit university she dove into the New Age, creating a local TV series on all things fringe, from reincarnation to psychic training, and organized a major UFO symposium. Moments before her brain exploded, she went into this weird cocoon-like state and emerged a metamorphised humanist, feminist, environmentalist and skeptical organizer and activist. After soaking in the gloriously diverse cultures of south Florida and New Orleans, she went to ground in the wilds of backwoods Florida and Virginia.
A naturalist in both senses of the word (nature study and preferring the natural to the supernatural), Bo now works as a consultant in a quiet part of Virginia. Anti-atheist bigotry there keeps her somewhat closeted (thus the pen name and dark pic, but she wants you to be braver than her). There she geeks out on botanizing and birds, while writing on science, nature, skepticism and religion at her blog Under the Greenwood Tree and at Doubtful News.

A 2008 graduate from Ball State university in Muncie, IN, she has also lived in Montana, Australia, and London, but currently resides on the North Side of Chicago with her boyfriend and his DVD collection. She loves science, horses, The Cubs, run-on sentences, and pre-2009-Discovery Channel. Her dream is to be a correspondent on The Daily Show or to only talk like she is in an Aaron Sorkin show.

He has two Master’s degrees, the first in Art and the second in Educational Psychology. He has worked as an artist and as a Marriage and Family Counselor with many years in the specialization of addiction medicine, having counseled more than ten thousand patients. Now retired, he lives in California with his wife and enjoys amateur astronomy, hiking in the Sierras, fossil hunting and making figurative sculptures.
After contributing various articles on Friendly Atheist for 20 months, at Hemant’s suggestion in July of 2009 he began writing an advice column called “Ask Richard.” Twice a week, he publishes his responses to email letters from people of all viewpoints, not just atheists. These usually deal with challenges or conflicts stemming from believers and nonbelievers living or working together. He hopes to reduce unnecessary strife and suffering on all sides.
